Clemson’s Christian Wilkins Had The Greatest Celebration In National Championship History


There are few better ways to release unbridled joy after hours of tension than with dance moves, and after a nail-biter of a College Football Playoff championship game, Clemson defensive lineman Christian Wilkins let loose with an absolutely killer move amidst the confetti on the field.

Clemson capped off yet another instant classic title game against Alabama with a last-second comeback for the ages on Monday night. It was always going to take a Herculean effort to stop the unstoppable title machine that is the Crimson Tide, and the Tigers leaving it late meant that everyone was on the edge of their seats through the fourth quarter. So when the final whistle sounded, you can imagine Clemson players wanted to cut loose.

One guy who appreciated Wilkins’ moves was Scott Van Pelt, whose reaction to the split was absolutely pricless:

Wilkins wasn’t done dancing either. Still shirtless and still feeling it on the trophy presentation podium, he only took a break from getting down to wrap head coach Dabo Swinney in a big ol’ bear hug:

Wilkins wears the number 42 to honor his grandfather, who was killed in a mistaken SWAT team raid in Framingham, Massachusetts back in 2011, so we should all be happy he’s got a chance for such pure happiness.
